According to a study presented today by the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, clinicians in rural areas refer a higher percentage of their patients to public immunization clinics than their urban counterparts do. Their reasons for referring, rather than providing immunizations themselves, included: another agency provides them; obtaining vaccines is too cumberson; the paperwork is too cumbersome; reimbursement is inadequate.The study was presented at the annual meeting of the Pediatric Academic Societies in New Orleans, May 1-5. For interviews during the meeting, contact the press room at (504) 670-8502 or 670-8508.Researchers’ Institutional Contact: Jennie Wilshire (303) 315-5571
